I love that you are able to create 3 complete different cards using the same Suite. I especially love it when I can showcase the set to the class. They love the variations of using the same set but creating 3 completely different cards

Today I am sharing with you our 2nd card created last Friday using the True Gentleman Suite from the 2018 Occasions Catalogue, Page 44. I am actually loving the colours & design of the True Gentleman DSP. Perfect for the males but which could also be used for females.
To create our shapes, we punched pieces of the DSP using the Tailored Tag Punch before layering them onto a piece of Night of Navy leaving a small amount showing around shapes.
Once again, I am taking part in Kylie’s International Blog Highlights where our theme this month is our favourite Sale-A-Bration Or Occasions Catalogue Product. This is the perfect time to celebrate, showcase & see all our lovely products!
Not sure of what is Kylie’s International Highlights? It is where Demonstrators from all around the world take part in a monthly Blog Highlight. It’s a great way to get to know other Demonstrators & see projects using current Stampin’ Up!® product.
What is so different about this Blog Highlight? YOU get to vote for your top 5 favourites. The top ten will then get to take part in an international blog hop with Kylie & other talented successful demonstrators.

I was playing around with the lovely Petal Passion Suite the other day creating a couple of future classes when an idea sort of popped into my head & of course I had to go for it. The Suite includes the lovely Petal Palette Stamp Set, Petals & More Thinlits Dies, Petal Passion DSP, Petal Passion Embellishments, Whisper White Organza Ribbon & of course the Petal Pair Embossing Folders. I’ve used all the mentioned except for the Ribbon.
I’ve kept my card all Whisper White except for touches of Cherry Cobbler which I think only highlights the Whisper White even more.
Don’t forget to pop on over to check out all the other lovely creations by visiting Kylie’s Blog. While there, be sure to vote for your 5 favourites.

Last week I challenged our FB Group to create a male card using the sketch provided. I thought it would be a great way to get their creative juices flowing & even use it for a class or demonstration. This is my take on the sketch.
The background was created with the Gamboge & Yellow Brushos – love these Powders – by spritzing Shimmery White with water & tapping Brushos directly over the CS, allowing it to spread & setting aside to dry.
I cut a piece of the DSP & randomly colouring the flowers with Calypso Coral, Pink Pirouette & Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends Combos. The leaves were coloured with a little Light Daffodil Delight & then with Old Olive Combo. The background has been coloured in Light Pool Party. Colouring the background made the flowers seem like they are floating.
Candy Dots were randomly scattered around the card front to finish it off but you could easily replace them with current product, eg Pearl Basic Jewels, Faceted Gems, etc.

Thanks so much for joining me today. I am participating in the Stamping Dreams Blog Hopfor December. The theme this month is showcasing our favourite DSP. This can be from the 2017-2018 Annual, 2017 Holiday Catalogue, the new 2018 Occasions Catalogue or the 2018 Sale-a-Bration Brochure. So many options!
This means you are getting a sneak peek from a couple of the items being made available come the 3rd January 2018 as I went with the fun & bright “Bubbles & Fizz” DSP from SAB & which you can earn free when you spend $AUD90.00 (excluding P&H).
I then decided to team it up with the equally fun & matching Bubble Over Bundle which includes the Bubble Over Stamp Set & the Bottles & Bubbles Framelits. I think these items are going to be one of my favourites from the Catalogues.
I’ve kept the use of my DSP fairly simple as I didn’t want it to be overtaken by the bottles, which have been created by die cutting & sponging with Calypso Coral, Lemon Lime Twist, Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight & Basic Grey Inks. I then spritzed the bottle with water to form “bubbles”.
If you click on the link below you will be able to download a free tutorial which includes the product used to create the page plus measurements (metric & imperial).
By clicking on the links list below the photo, you will be able to check out the other lovely creations in the hop.
Thank you so much for stopping by & checking out my project today.
To finish off the card I scattered Pearl Basic Jewelsaround the embossed sentiment & the DSP.
I opened my emails this morning to find a lovely surprise – SU! are once again offering FREE Shipping for today ONLY – Monday, 11 December. This offer ends 11.259pm tonight so get in quick while you are able.
It is the perfect opportunity as today is also the last day that if you place an order it will arrive before Christmas. After today, they do not guarantee that you will receive your goodies before Christmas.
I was wide awake at about 3.30am the other morning & this idea sort of popped into my head, so of course I had to try it out immediately. I’m happy to say it worked & that I am more than excited that I can now use the set for multiple occasions. Gotta love it when you can get multiple uses from your products.
I’ve taken the layout for the card from a sketch that I gave to my team sometime ago & thought it would be good to revisit the same sketch but with different supplies. You can see the original card by clicking here. I think I’ve hit the mark with this one. Don’t you?
The “berries” are from the same stamp set & randomly stamped in BerryBurst. The Tranquil Tide Ribbon was layered across the top of the Painted Autumn DSP & then the Lemon Lime Twist Ombre Ribbon (it’s so pretty) across the middle of that.
The stamped wreath was die cut with the circle from the Stitched Shapes Framelits before being layered onto a scallop circle die cut from the Layering Circles Framelits.
The sentiment is from the Hearts Come Home set & was stamped direct onto Whisper White in Berry Burst.
The card was layered onto Lemon Lime Twist & then to the Base Card – Tranquil Tide.
